Catholic League president Bill Donohue has responded to artist Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ" by filling a far with fake feces and a President Obama bobblehead doll.

"I am not just the head of the Catholic League," Donohue says in a video. "I am not just a sociologist, I'm not just a guy who writes books about all kinds of contemporary social events. People don't know it, but I am an artist too."

"I have a jar too. This is not a crucifix in a jar of urine; this is a bobblehead of our President, President Obama in feces. Well, not really feces. To tell you the truth, it's brown Play-Doh."

"The cultural and the political elite are basically secularists," Donohue says. "They don't believe in God. This is their God," he says, pointing to the jar. "Liberalism is their God."

"Piss Christ," a jar of artist Serrano's urine with a crucifix in it that was at the center of controversy in the late 1980s, came back to New York last week and is being displayed in Midtown.
